Audience Reviews for Legend of the Mountain
An adaptation of a traditional Chinese ghost story by King Hu. It is kind of slow in the first half, but once the truth about village people is revealed, it gets quicker. Although there is no sword fight nor kungfu fight, Hu's veteran job on mise-en-scene gives great depth to the film. Cinematography, which makes the most of natural sourses, is great as usual. As long as who are really ghosts is kept secret to you, it is suspenceful and tense, but once it is revealed, and they start to fight with supernatural powers, it gets a little dissapointing. Also, the hero is so stupid and weak that could even annoy you. King Hu's goddess Hsu Feng does a great performance in a bitch role, and young Sylvia Chang shows her cuteness fully.
